Celebrities Respond To The Tragic Loss Of Prince

Celebrities have taken to social media to express the pain of losing Prince. They describe him as an icon, a genius, visionary, a warrior, legend, brilliant, an artist and a friend. However, no words seem to be able to capture the magnitude of this tragedy. His music touched millions of people around the globe and he was loved and admired for his showmanship, eccentric outfits, wide vocal range, raw talent and musical genius. Like so many others we lost him too soon.

It was Raspberry Beret. I was 4 years old. Yes, 4. I remember that I instantly loved it. "Mommy, who is that singing?" Seems weird but it's true. More than a "once in a lifetime" artist… Just a ONCE IN FOREVER ARTIST. I'm still in shock as I write this and I feel this overwhelming grief. But, we should all turn away from that and HONOR this musician that changed all of our lives, our perspectives, our feeling, our whole being. From another planet? Probably. Royalty, for sure. Us worthy..? Laughable. They say don't meet your idols… That they let you down. But, some of my greatest, funniest (yes, he was hilarious), and most prolific encounters and conversations about music came from the moments that I spent with him. It would be silly to say that he has inspired our music… It's beyond that. He's somewhere within every song I've ever written. I am sad, but I will smile when I think of every second that I had the fortune of being in his company. We have lost our greatest living musician. But his music will never die. Prince, NOTHING COMPARES… #RIPPrince
